Conquistador was born in Belgium and sold as colt to Australia where he started his CSI career at age seven with Chris Chugg. He was then exported to the USA in 2009 where he brought his young rider, Karl Cook, up to level CSI5*. In 2010, Conquistador placed twice in 1m60 tests at the CSI5* in Calgary, Alberta. He was highly active in CSI5* Grand Prix throughout the USA, and in Calgary, AB, from 2011 to 2015.
His offspring are confident and show exceptional ability in sport. Conquistador was the only stallion with two offspring among the 30 best horses at the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon, NC. He had less than 20 offspring recorded in Australia before he was moved to the USA and 11 of them became victorious in CSI competitions. Among these, two finalists were at the 2018 World Cup in Bercy, and at the Tryon World Equestrian Games in 2018: Oaks Redwood (13 yo) placed 24th of the JEM of Tryon with Billy Raymont of Australia. Constellation (12 yo) placed 29th at the JEM in Tryon, 3rd at the GP CSI3* of Lier in 2017, was victorious at the CSIO5* GCT of Paris, and the CSIO5* in Rotterdam in 2015 with Jamie Kermond.
